Anyone remember back to the end of November when I told you hipsters about ESPN’s plan to have a Moto X-Games themed New Years Party? Well okay if you don’t here’s the quick background….Starts after the Chick-Fil-A Bowl around 11:15, features Motocross jumps, and a band…..umm, that’s about it.
Well back when I posted it they had yet to name the (as they referred to it) “Superstar Musical Performance”. Any guesses? No??? Okay, what if I told you the name of the band was “Angels and Airwaves”? Ring any bells??? Didn’t think so. The only reason I know who they are is because one of the ex-members of Blink 182 (Tom Delonge) is in the band, but other than that I didn’t even know they had a new album out…..
Rock band Angels and Airwaves will help usher in 2008 on New Year, No Limits: New Year’s on ESPN Monday, Dec. 31, beginning at approximately 11:15 p.m. ET following the network’s coverage of the Chick-fil-A Bowl (ESPN/ESPNHD). The band will perform their hit songs “Everything is Magic” and “The Adventure” during the live, three-hour show from the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The night will feature two Red Bull Experiments by motorsports stars Robbie “Maddo” Maddison and Rhys Millen: a world-record motorcycle jump the length of a football field (Maddison) and a never-before executed back flip in an off-road racing truck (Millen).
Not to piss people of again, and go music snob on you all (sorry Barenaked Ladies fans), but they aren’t exactly “Superstars”. Here are some of the reviews from their debut album which came out in 2006. I’m surprised they were available.
